Don’t Squander the Vision

blueprintBill Hybels on God-given visions.

Some of the most exciting visions that God ever offered to humans have languished, whithered and died. Why? Because some leader somewhere saw it and felt it but did not have the guts to own it or act on it…

Visions are priceless. They are holy entrustments from God that must be taken seriously. To squander a vision is an unthinkable sin…

Please don’t miss this. If God has given you a kingdom vision, if you see it clearly and feel it deeply, you had better take responsibility for it. You had better give your life to it. That’s why God made you a leader. That’s your unique calling. That’s what you and I will be held accountable for.
